Connecting Business & Community

The North Essex Chamber of Commerce exists to connect local businesses with the communities that we serve: Montclair, Verona, Cedar Grove, Caldwell, North Caldwell, Essex Fells, Roseland and Fairfield New Jersey.

The North Essex Chamber Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the Chamber that serves to engage with non-profit, education and community initiatives.

Every year the Foundation strengthens our local communities by working with non-profits, schools and other organizations.

Major events such as The Taste of Essex and the Holiday Celebration are used to raise funds for non-profit members and Foundation initiatives.

Some of the organizations we have partnered with  are:

Taste of Essex

Each spring, NECC celebrates the Essex County food culture by bringing together some of the finest restaurants and drink purveyors in New Jersey to be enjoyed by the hundreds of people who attend Taste of Essex. Restaurants are judged on the best Sweet and the best Savory dishes.

A portion of the proceeds goes to support the NECC Foundation.
